Doctors and nurses the world over are receiving praise for their fight against the novel corona virus. Another group of doctors, at the Charite Clinic in Berlin, are fighting to save the lives of Russia’s opposition leaders.
The German Clinic became well known this past weekend for taking in Alexi Navlany after the Kremlin’s attempt to poison him. Physicians issueed the following statement:
“Following his admission, Mr. Navalny underwent extensive examination by a team of Charité physicians. Clinical findings indicate poisoning with a substance from the group of cholinesterase inhibitors. The specific substance involved remains unknown, and a further series of comprehensive testing has been initiated. The effect of the poison – namely, the inhibition of cholinesterase in the body – was confirmed by multiple tests in independent laboratories.”
After participating in a public stunt during the FIFA World Cup in Moscow in July of 2018, Pyotr Verzilov and several other Pussy Riot members were arrested and charged. On 11 September that year, Verzilov was suddenly hospitalized and by the 13th he was admitted to the intensive care unit.
